* Puter, the Bat-Computer from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoBatmanMovie'', is voiced by Siri. As noted under Real Life below, Siri's voice isn't entirely synthetic, but the distinction between being voiced by Siri and being voiced by Susan Bennett is there.

Added DiffLines:

* The merchant in ''VideoGame/CryptOfTheNecrodancer'' doesn't "speak", per se, but he "sings" along to the background music by way of a synth voice track layered over the rest of the soundtrack. Because his singing can be used to locate his store (and its useful goods), it's generally considered a MostWonderfulSound. [[ChestMonster Just be careful if the singing seems off-key]].

* Pulitzer Prize winning film critic Creator/RogerEbert used a computer to communicate after he lost his voice due to thyroid cancer. Software engineers began using clips from DVD commentaries that he recorded to synthesize his own voice, which he demonstrated on ''TheOprahWinfreyShow'', but his variant wasn't fully completed before his death.

* ''[[http://www.indiedb.com/games/nsfw-not-a-simulator-for-working NSFW - Not a Simulator For Working]]'' ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXYSlRwPfX0 playthrough by Markiplier]]) uses various synthetic voices to create the "porn sounds", which kicks it straight into the realm of {{narm}}.

* The title robot in ''WesternAnimation/WhateverHappenedToRobotJones'' originally used [=MacinTalk=] Junior, credited as "Himself", but later switched to a synthesized human voice, and they even redubbed the earlier episodes with the real actor.

* Deliberately used ''badly'' in ''TimeFcuk''--the main character's voice is barely even comprehensible, and definitely doesn't sound human. It's not quite certain why this is--perhaps the RuleOfScary, or a deliberate attempt to "[[TheEveryman anonymize]]" him?

* ''VideoGame/QBert'' uses a Votrax voice synthesizer chip[[note]]Also used in their pinball machines such as Pinball/BlackHole[[/note]] to supply the voices of the various characters. Unfortunately, the chip used couldn't produce coherent phrases[[note]]Well, actually it could, but it mostly wasn't good enough for what they were looking for. Q*Bert himself does say one phrase when the machine is turned on: "Hello, I am turned on". He also says "Bye-bye!" after the player enters their initials on the high score list.[[/note]], so the designers decided to go the other direction and have the characters speak a StarfishLanguage.[[note]]WordOfGod is that the programmer in charge of programming the speech was too frustrated with the chip's API due to how hard it was to get it to say what he wanted properly, and simply decided to give up and have Q*Bert speak gibberish after programming the abovementioned two phrases[[/note]]
